Abstract: The central intention of this research was to examine grade nine English teachers’ reading lesson presentation in relation to the introduction of the new course book in Addis Ababa. To attain this objective, descriptive research method was employed. What is more, twenty- five, grade nine English language teachers in Addis Ababa were selected using availability sampling from five secondary schools randomly selected from Region 14 twenty high schools. Necessary data was gathered using questionnaires and observation. In addition, these data were analyzed using descriptive statistics such as frequency and percentage. The result of this study revealed that most of the subjects rarely or never present reading lessons in line with the procedures prescribed in the new Teacher’s Book. As a result the three phases of reading lesson presentation procedures suggested in the new textbook for teaching reading were rarely or not at all practiced in grade nine in Addis Ababa. Moreover, the study depicted that English teachers’ reading lesson presentation practice was dominated by traditional approach of teaching reading. Thus, there is a mismatch between the prescribed procedures in the new Teacher’s Book and the teachers’ actual classroom reading lesson presentation practice.
